Workholding Grippers Line Fit a Variety of Applications


A complete line of industrial gripper inserts can be used in jigs, fixtures, and chuck jaws and are versatile enough to fit any number of applications. Available in round, square, and angle configurations with many different serrated tooth patterns, the gripper contact materials include high-speed tool steel, solid carbide, carbide tipped, and urethane surface.


Round and square steel grippers are made from M-2 high-speed steel, hardened to Rc 60/62 with a black oxide finish. They're serrated for positive holding in tough applications. While the carbide-tipped grippers are brazed to a heat-treated alloy steel body with a blind hole tap for backside mounting and flat on O.D. for setscrew mounting.


The lineup includes solid carbide grippers for high wear and high load applications. SofTop urethane grippers are available in a variety of durometers and are permanently bonded to a 300 series stainless steel pad. The non-marking, non-staining urethane provides excellent protection against damage on delicate work surfaces. The diamond abrasive gripper’s surface is permanently fused to a stainless-steel pad. The surface texture is comparable to a 100-grit abrasive and is ideal for holding smooth or slippery applications with a minimum of clamping pressure while providing unparalleled wear resistance.


The adjustable grippers come in a variety of configurations including hex, round, and threaded bodies. The threaded body allows the user to adjust the height of the gripper. The serrated carbide tip provides positive holding and wear resistance.


TG GripSert inserts grip steel materials, with only 3.5 mm of clamp surface needed to securely hold the workpiece, they are ideal for 5-axis machining operations because they create a pull-down effect that prevents any lifting of the workpiece while clamping. Their triangular shape with a 5-deg. tapering and teeth geometry combine to provide exceptional clamping stability with no need for pre-machining or dovetailing workpieces. TG GripSerts grippers are designed to absorb and dampen vibrations, providing secure and stable holding at lower clamping forces which prevents deformation of the workpiece.


Swivot is a swivel gripper that provides superior holding power for a variety of applications. Swivots are a modular component system that can swivel and tilt to compensate for workpiece angles and irregularities.


To complete the lineup, gripper rest pads are ideal for industrial-grade contact wear points in automation and positioning applications. Black nitrile rubber (60A durometer) is molded to a malleable aluminum backing that can be formed into round or sharp corners. Rest pads are made from white Delrin. They are non-marring and non-absorbing.
